Welcome to Orcmid's Lair, the playground for family connections, pastimes, and scholarly vocation -- the collected professional and recreational work of Dennis E. Hamilton
Next: The World Wide Collaborative Grid
ACM News Service: Invitation to World Wide Consortium for the Grid Symposium. This ACM TechNews blurb announces a Symposium to be held on May 24-26 at George Mason University. Intriguing for me is conference chair Peter Dennng’s characterization of the stages we are progressing through: connectivity and the internet (80’s), information sharing and the web (90’s), distributed collaboration and the grid (now).
There’s a W2COG brochure in PDF and an on-line registration process for those who can go. I can’t and I’m jealous. If you go, help them tone down the military emphasis and the weird sidebar on “Mission Thread Analyis.” If we really want world-wide participation and contribution, at any rate. It reminds me of what can happen when I clone one web page as a boilerplate for customization into another. Heh.
The agenda suggests that the application of Network Centric Operations in-the-field for military engagements and emergency relief activities is an intended focus. Well, maybe I’m not so envious that I’ll still be immersed in my M.Sc in IT dissertation project in May.
Dear friend, have you looked into the Interplanetary Internet of NASA et al?
Thanks for the link to this one world connective grid thingamajig. Will check it out.
